Yoga Pose Video Tutorial for Chaturanga Dandasana
In Four-Limbed Staff Pose, the goal is to create a perfect 90-degree angle at the elbows, so the shoulders don’t dip down lower than the elbows. It can be difficult to determine whether you are maintaining correct yoga alignment in this posture. Using blocks will provide guidelines for proper height and give you feedback about where your body is in space.
You might be surprised how “high” it feels to be in the correct alignment in this yoga pose. If you experience this surprise, it’s possible that you have been bending your elbows too much and going too low in the asana.
